Created an Access Form that contains a Microsoft Web Browser control.
The code used in the Form's On Load event is:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.WebBrowser0.Navigate2 "C:\Users\AB\Desktop\Sample.pdf"
End Sub

Works fine.  Next, I want to:

In the Form's On Load event, I want to search Sample.pdf for a text string stored in a string variable.

What's the best recommended way to perform this search using code?  Know that I can use the Adobe Search toolbar.

There is no VBA method to do this. You'd have to use a 3rd party utility, like the Adobe SDK, to do this.
